For the card above, I used the new Seeds of Today stamp set, and the new thanks die. I stamped the image with VersaMark, heat embossed with gold, and cut it with a Layered Lacey Ovals die. While it was still in the die I sponged some distress inks lightly around the image, and the inks resisted the embossed parts. This is called emboss resist, and I haven't used the technique in quite a while, but I love the look! I used design paper from the Whimsical Flower Paper Collection, cut with the Double Stitched Rectangles, and matted that with a purple solid paper from the Plum Pizzazz Paper Pack, and cut with the Pierced Rectangles. I added some bling to finish off the card.
For the basket below, I used the super fun new ODBD Custom Bountiful Basket Die. I cut the basic basket from white card stock, and the design paper pieces from the Plum Pizzazz Paper Pack. I used the new Seeds of Today stamp set for my sentiment, stamping it with purple ink. I then die cut it with the Ornate Ovals die, and matted it with an Ovals die. I die cut the purple bow using the ODBD Custom Small Bow die. I attached my handles with brads, which gives me full range of motion for the handles. I filled my basket with hard candies, thinking it would make a cute favor for the table.
To recap, here are the NEW ODBD products I used today:
